Greetings Parents, Students, Faculty & Staff,
On behalf of the editorial team, I would like to introduce the February 2023 issue of The Salesian Spectator. This is the very first issue of the new year after all of our busy schedules from January. This issue entails articles from the likes of Angelo Ledda ‘24, Jacob Matos ‘23, Lucas Rojas ‘24, and Silas Gonzalez ‘24 among others. It features many of the events that have occurred within our Salesian community thus far in the new year. Specifically, this issue highlights spirit week and NHS’s successful “Spread The Warmth” drive, but it also covers broader world events like the 2023 World Baseball Classic and our new speaker.
The Spectator thanks the Salesian Community, our Faculty, Staff, and students who have contributed towards the very first issue of the school year. Our goal as the Spectator is to ensure that our Salesian Community has the means and access to use its voices. Our prayers are with our Salesian families at home and abroad, and we continue to keep those affected by world events in our hearts. I hope you enjoy the February Issue put together by the men of the Salesian Spectator.
